Applied Math Modeling Inc. has announced a partnership with Ozen Engineering, Inc., to sell and support the popular CoolSim data center design optimization software. Ozen will represent CoolSim sales in the state of California as the CoolSim product continues to gain momentum and popularity in the design and efficient operation of data centers.
“We are thrilled to be working with Applied Math Modeling and are excited to be representing the CoolSim product here in California,” said Metin Ozen, president of Ozen Engineering, Inc. “As an ANSYS reseller, we see CoolSim as very complementary to our ANSYS Icepak line of software used in the design of electronics packaging. With CoolSim, we can now offer customers a range of simulation products from the chip level to the data center.”
Paul Bemis, CEO of Applied Math Modeling said: “Ozen Engineering is a perfect partner to represent the CoolSim product. Their depth of knowledge, expertise, and excellent reputation for customer support fits very well into our overall plan to broaden the use of CFD modeling in the data center. This comes at a perfect time as we begin the rollout of our new CoolSim 4 implementation.”
CoolSim 4 allows users to predict the effect of failed cooling units and the energy savings related to optimizing airflow using techniques such as containment (Hot-Aisle/Cold-Aisle) or reduced fan speeds. And because CoolSim 4 is highly scalable, data center energy optimization occurs through the rapid manipulation of design parameters.
CoolSim 4 is based upon an all new model building environment, which improves user productivity by allowing models to be built in multiple concurrent views. Thus the data center model can be constructed using both 2D and 3D views at the same time. The option to use multiple display monitors is also supported, offering additional on-screen real estate for building more accurate representations of the data center.
Once built, the model is automatically submitted to a hosted high-performance computing (HPC) cluster for processing using ANSYS®/FLUENT (CFD) technology. After the simulation is complete, HTML output reports and 3D visual images are produced and sent to the user. This mechanism allows users to perform multiple “what-if” studies of their data centers to determine the optimal placement of existing equipment, evaluate new or alternative designs, or visualize the effect of adding new equipment to an existing room.
Industry’s Only SaaS Model
Applied Math Modeling continues to drive down total cost-of-ownership (TCO) for customers by delivering CoolSim 4 using a hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) model that includes the software and the computational capacity to perform the complex CFD calculations.
“No longer do users have to pay the high annual license fees or invest in expensive local servers to use a CFD based data center modeling tool,” added Bemis. “With CoolSim 4, users can leverage the same technology used in the aerospace and automotive markets at a fraction of the cost of ‘local processing only’ solutions.” By using the CoolSim 4 subscription model, occasional users can select a usage plan that meets their specific needs.
